came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obama effectively painted romney as untested reckless and inconsistent when it comes to foreign policy. he also mocked romney's knowledge of the military with the most popular zinger of the night. when romney complained that the navy has its smallest fleet in nearly 100 years, here is the president's response. >> obama: governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where plan
are in the homestretch of the race for the white house. president obama and mitt romney met to debate foreign policy at lynn university in boca raton florida, last night and when it was all over, romney's running mate, congressman paul ryan, picked a winner close to his heart. >> i think governor romney won this debate and you know why i think he won it? because americans, for a third time now got to see a man ready to become a great president. >> eliot: the polls suggest voters saw the debate a little differently. undecided voters in a cbs news poll favored president obama's performance by 30 points over mitt romney. registered voters in a cnn poll gave the president an 8-point lead over his rival and voters in 11 swing states gave mr. obama an 11-point debate margin over romney in a public policy poll. those swing state voters also favored the president by 6 points when they were asked who they planned to support. the big sur prices last night for much of the debate, mitt romney seemed more concerned with obscuring the differences
. we have a whole trunk full. all right. maybe the romney/ryan naval solution isn't quite that antiquated. still, they say the darnedest things, don't they? as for us, time to batten down the hatches. there will be giants to slay! >> jennifer: well, at last night's debate, mitt romney did seem kind of hard-pressed to come up with any real criticism of the obama administration's foreign policy positions. as our own john fuglesang here at current tv, he put it so wonderfully, it was as if romney were introducing the me, too doctrine. so how much does mitt romney support the president's foreign policy? well, let me count the ways. he agrees with the president's proposed 2014 withdrawal from afghanistan. he agrees with putting sanctions on iran. and he agrees with the president's handling of the iraq war. and the drone strikes and targeted killings in pakistan. but one place the candidates do diverge is on spending. here's what that looks like when you put the two plans side by side. president obama would hono
on economic policy. mitt romney would tell a crowd of iowa supporters and the world how he would lead the country forward into a new era of prosperity and growth. romney spoke today and yes romney did dust off the same five-point economic plan he has been touting for months. the only thing remotely fresh that romney offered was more cries for change wrapped in a series of unrelenting attacks on president obama who apparently bears sole responsibility for everything that has gone wrong in washington the fast four years. >> this is a year of a choice. americans want to see changes. four years ago people voted for a partisan president and washington is in gridlock because of it president obama reminds us that he inherited a terrible economy. it's not what he inherited but with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americans to endure lengthy poverty. >> eliot: with change in the latest theme for the drive to the white house smith fired back saying, the only ching romney is offering is to take us back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy in

. this is the type of thing that mitt romney -- you know, doesn't speak out about at all on the right. he has not been a leader for women whereas the president has always been a strong advocate for women's economic and health security. and that's what we're talking about. we're talking about our security. and that's what i see people talking about. women saying if i don't have the ability to plan my family, then i worry like well, what am i -- what if i have to leave my job? are our two incomes which are necessary, are they in jeopardy? those are the questions that women have that i'm talking to. they're tying their health security to their economic security and make no mistake they're one in the same for families and for women in america. >> stephanie: that shouldn't be a hard question. that moment stuck out at me from the debate about equal pay. about lilly ledbetter. >> don't get me -- >> stephanie: it is such a complicated issue. no it's not. >> not complicated. i have met lilly ledbetter she's an amazing woman. she --

. and then what does the romney tune do? they do it again. they go racist again. >> frankly when you take a look at colin powell you have to wonder if that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he has a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> cenk: what reason would that be? >> yeah, i got a pretty good idea. we'll show the wholly in a little bit. then the republicans are terribly offended by this ad. >> my first time voting was amazing. before i was a girl, now i am a woman. i pulled back the curtain. i voted for barack obama. >> cenk: but there is a twist to that story. i can't wait to shove that in the republicans' face. do you know what time it is? it's showtime. >> cenk: all right, let's be honest. it's panic time. mitt romney is winning on the national level. on the popular vote. this is a collection of votes that the "huffington post" does, 47.3% to 46.9%. when you look at the margin of error, he is winning. when you look at other politics, there you have 47.9%-to-47.0%. i thought barack obama would win the popular vote and the college electoral vote. this morni

of winning than romney does. but we'll see how they both play. so here is the last presidential debate. >> good evening from the campus of lynn university here in boca raton, florida. this is the fourth and last debate of the 2012 campaign brought to you by the commission of presidential debates. one is on foreign policy. i'm bob schieffer of cbs news. the questions are mine and i have not shared them with the candidates or their aids. the audience has taken a vow of silence. no reaction of any kind except right now, when we welcome president barack obama and governor romney. [ cheers and applause ] >> gentlemen your campaigns have agreed to certain rules, and they are simple. they have asked me to divide the evening into segments. i'll poesz a question at the beginning of each segment. you will each have two minutes to respond, and then we will have a general discussion until we move to the next segment. tonight's debate as both of you know comes on the 50th anniversary of the night that president kennedy told the world that the soviet union had installs nuclear mis
and the unilateralism of mitt romney with an effective rhetorical point that doesn't translate well. >> al gore: on the other hand where experience in foreign policy can make a difference, avoiding mistakes that could be embarrassing and coming back in the post debate analyses as a big problem. the most famous example was ironically made by an incumbent president, gerald ford, when he declared that poland was completely free at a time before it was. and then governor carter called him on that, and then after the debate i think it really did hurt president ford quite a bit. >> cenk: i want to ask you guys a question about whether these foreign policy debates are binary. i remember the one with george bush and the vice president i decided after that debate i was not going to vote for george bush under any circumstance. to me it was an elimination. he didn't seem to know what he was talking about. is that the test? you have to just pass the command center chief test, and has president obama already passed it, and hence this debate is really about whether romney can pass it or not, is it as simple
the end of the campaign mitt romney deals with more hot air, his surrogates. they collectively try to make the candidate's last days on the campaign trail as uncomfortable as possible. surely an onstage appearance with meatloaf will right ship. ♪ >> jennifer: all right. that was way over the top. i think i better get away from him. i'm just going to slowly walk over here and stand by this guy with the hat. it's a little better i guess. geez louise how come every single time i try to sing this song, it turns into a train wreck for me. [♪ theme music ♪] >> jennifer: there are now just eleven days until the election and the president's message is very simple every vote counts. today he took that idea to young voters in an interview with mtv. >> don't believe this idea that your vote does not matter. in 2000 in gore versus bush 537 votes changed the direction of history. and the same thing could happen here. so there's no excuse regardless of who you vote for, folks get to need out there and vote. >> jennifer: so where does the race stand right now? there's goo
of the presidential race? these guys are all tightly connected to mitt romney. john sununu is an active romney surrogate as he basically says that colin powell endorsed president obama because he is black. donald trump, you know he has been doing robo calls and endorsements for mitt romney. despite the fact that these guys are supporters and allies mitt romney has not personally refuted a single one of their offensive statements. he has actually been running from the media, hoping hoping it all dies down please go away. he could certainly learn a thing, mitt romney could, about being courageous from john mccain. remember in 2008 when john mccain stood up to the people who thought president obama administration was a muslim. >> no, man. he is not. thank you. thank you. [ applause ] >> jennifer: john mccain earned a lot of respect for standing up and being honest. mitt romney remains silent. silence in the face of these kind of comments is unacceptable. there's a saying that goes not to speak is to speak. not to act is to act. joining me from washington to discuss the repu
